How can they keep adding punishment or restrictions to me? Isn’t that double jeopardy and unconstitutional?

It ought to be, but public registration is not considered “punishment”, legally speaking. The United States Supreme Court and most state courts have deemed registration to be a “civil regulatory scheme” like the permit required to own a firearm, or earning a driver’s license. As a civil regulation, it can be changed at any time by your elected representatives.
